Dont know what´s the deal with the antec, I´d rather spend 10$ more and get the CM storm enforcer that even won the Tom's Hardware 2012 Recommend Buy Award and looks cooler .

If it´s just for gaming with an i5 3570k you got more than enough and maybe you could drop the wattage unless you´re planning to go SLI in the future and save a few bucks, 650-700w will be plenty for any single gpu build.

PS. +1 to the 212 evo. ;)

I like the CM storm enforcer! and according to your guys suggestions i picked the cooling system 12 evo.

i am going to be doing other things other than gaming! music, video rendering, photo shop, and more can't remember..!
i though the intel i7 was better so i picked that part for the gaming pc, and i wanted to last for awhile so i thought that if i get better parts i wont have to update it soon!
